Last thread:
Old thread is autosaging. Hiro wants us to discuss the future of /v/

In the last thread an idea was proposed that some seemed to like:

>>315363123
>>315359886

Seems like most things people want are better moderation, better self moderation, and an /celeb/ containment board.

Leave your thoughts below.
>>
We don't need separate console and PC boards.
We don't need separate Xbox and Playstation boards.
We don't need separate Western and Japanese boards.
We don't need separate indie and AAA boards.
We don't need a separate Nintendo board.

Anyone who asks for any of these things is a fanboy.

What we need is for the mods to crack down on people posting NOT VIDYA This includes e-celebs and copy-pasted OPs.

Waifushit, cuteposting, and NSFW content - even about vidya characters - are also not vidya.

Slow /v/. The only reason why is /v/ so terrible is because it's too fast. 1 hour before you can make another thread and 3 or 5 minutes delay before new reply instead of 1 minute. It help mods to catch up shitposters, it prevent imagedumping etc etc. Simple.

We could try designated shitposting generals sanctioned by mods. People who come here only wanting console wars can have a console wars thread, or a consoles vs PC thread etc, as many as needed for the major meta shit, all day long.

Argumentative autists would tire themselves out faster in such threads and also attract the people who are easily triggered by these topics to enter those threads (instead of random ones all over /v/) and bicker with them. Maybe they'll all get strokes from autistic rage and we'd be rid of them finally.

In the meantime they would have their own hell-on-earth designated shitting thread while the rest of /v/ hopefully gets a bit cleaner because the really rowdy argumentative people will be corralled in a few threads, a mini containment if you will, that also avoids something drastic like a board split.

Nope. People don't shitpost just because it's fast. This would only hinder people who want to make a lot of quality posts in a row.

If you did this the board would be slower but the overall ratio of shitposts would be the same, and if the shitposters are more dedicated, which they usually are, they could just find ways around the speedbumps.

Why is /v/ even bad? What is so bad about it? Do you even know why you hate it so much? Have you actually thought about it, or are you just regurgitating what somebody else said in some tryhard big essay post?

Don't you have some fun posting here? Why else would you be posting here to begin with? Do you think /v/ should be perfect or something? You know you won't be happy with whatever changes are made in the long run, you'll find something new to bitch about, some new fanbase, some new media trend, some new meme(game). You can't even remember when /v/ was even ever good or bad or worse or better than it is now, it's just a spotty mashup in your brain of some good memories and bad memories, some are probably just false memories from looking at old screencaps of "OC".

You can't even properly judge the board as it is. You don't know what's truly a good thread or not. You scroll through the catalog and go "SHIT!! SHIT!!! SHIIIITTTTTT!!!!!!" and yet most of the threads are probably just games you haven't played yet and things you don't understand, so you disregard them out of disinterest and then moan about how /v/ is going down the shitter. Your own boredom with the board and the hobby and generic internet shitposts biases you against /v/.

/vc/ - Vidya Culture was a decent idea. /v/ could finally get stricter rules and focus on just vidya, while all the funposters would enjoy their board culture on a dedicated red board.

>but /v/ already has three containment boards and it's still shit
Two of those were created specifically to manage clutter, not shit/funposting (can't remember why /vr/ came about). This would be the first attempt to help keep /v/ focused on actual vidya.
>>
>>315364326
I like the e-celeb containment board idea but to keep it from being total shit, it could be more of a "videgame culture" board. E-celebs can be discussed there, goobergate can be discussed there, and steam, xbl and psn services can be discussed. (I mention this specifically because of Steam, although it can pertain to the other services, because I often see threads about people greentexting stories of wierd people they've met on Steam, or someone they met from /v/ who turned out to be a total memester, or of themselves acting autistic; these threads usually get deleted on sight and this would give them a place to go).

/av/-Adult related vidya discussion
This could be a place where we can post images of nipples from games that have them without getting banned, a board where we can properly discuss porn games, porn mods, post nudity from games, have proper vidya waifu threads without retards shitting them up.

/vc/- Vidya culture
A containment board for all the "MUH CULTURE" people.
LOL threads, Cringe threads, vidya related eceleb threads, game related con threads, etc can go here for proper discussion of those things without fear of deletion.

I like the idea of dividing pc and console gamers. Then again it's all video games. I think v and v2 is a good thing. Let discussion of video games only and video game news be on v, and on v2 everything else video game related. Video games are big, and so is porn. They have so much boards for porn. We should get at least two boards. Also IDs, that would stop a lot of shitposting. Mods need to do their job too.
>>
>>315365216

But you're creating a bad board. Why do you think intentionally creating a bad board is good?

And who's going to enforce those rules for what each board specifically needs to be about, then? Remember - mods can't keep up.
>>
>>315365045
This is semantics, but you don't have to have a malicious intent to shitpost or create a shitposting thread. Whenever somebody on /v/ mentions recreational shitposting it's usually out of either boredom first, then specific hate for whatever thread they're shitposting in, and even then it's usually falseflagging for lulz and to fuck with fanboys on /v/.

>M-MUH CULTURE!
I'm fucking sick of this goddamned piece of shit argument. Don't you faggots realize that culture isn't an excuse to act retarded? Haitian culture is swinging machetes at each other. Middle eastern culture is slitting off your daughter's clitoris for "cleanliness." African culture is going into a fucking ape rage, destroying everything and selling the scrap metal, and raping babies to cure your AIDs. I don't give a shit if posting retarded nonsense about your waifu or cumming with a dragon dilod in your ass is your "culture." It's still bad.

Look I'm not that Anon but this is such a stupid bullshit concept that I can't begin to understand how people don't get it.

You see, we have THREE boards to do imagedumps, /c/, /b/ and /h/, If you are not going to DISCUSS a videogame then it doesn't belong in /v/, even if the characters are vidya characters if you are not discussing, by your own example, the game mechanics or how to pull off a combo easier or how to do some crazy ass move but instead you just want to dump your 1234 image folder of generic loli fighter #234 then no, you deserve the deletion.


Now let me tell you faggots something, /v/ is fine as a videogame board but it has a lot of shitposting going on. After all, most of the /v/ culture comes from le rage mememan and most /v/tards like to identify as that, so if you want to fix this board, forget about the speed and focus on 2 things: Better moderation and self moderation. Take /a/ for example, if you see a shit thread that you don't like just report it, chances are it's against the rules and mods will take care of it.

Or maybe, just maybe, you could learn to play the game and discuss the mechanics. Have you ever seen the discussion of a game like BlazBlue on a site like Dustloop?

Can you fuckers get it around you head that "containment boards" are bullshit and they will still just come over to /v/ for funposting?

Cant we just grow some fucking balls and go back to being "NO FUN ALLOWED". Back when furryshit popped up everywhere it took one fucking rule to get the mods to remove it all. No containment, no mercy.

Later, we had ponyshit and they suddenly get a board all to themselves and they still occasionally crop here. Containment does nothing, without IDs or tripcodes there's no way to tell if the guy is a faggot from /mlp/ or /pol/. We need to re-write the rules on /v/ be concise and enforceable and for mods to stick to it and not make exceptions.

Yes. All these people saying it'll be a bad board don't realize how much people like the "muh culture" threads, like LOL threads. Especially since they get so many damn posts so fucking quick.

Why don't we just bring the R9K filter over to /v/? The thing was designed SPECIFICALLY for boards like this that have gotten too popular and gone to shit. Within weeks every variation of "sony/xbone/nintendo keks/fags/niggers BTFO/on suicide watch" etc etc etc would be filtered out and shitposting would become increasingly more difficult.
>>
No point in segregating video games ANY FURTHER. /vr/ was pretty unnessary considering how /v/ is known to be nostalgia-blinded and hates most new things. It's not like old games aren't discusses on an hourly basis anyway.

/celeb/ doesn't have enough meat to warrant it's existence. People don't talk about e-celebs that don't have anything to do with video games. It's more secondary than tertiary.

I imagine if there was a /celeb/-board, we'd get the worst kinds of faggots who seek a board JUST ABOUT FUCKING YOUTUBERS and discuss them. Regardless of how much you fucking love egoraptor, you don't make every fucking thread or post about him and would have to have a good reason or just be really enthralled to make a post/thread of him in the first place.

>>315365792
You actually see more furshit than pony shit on /v/.
But thats also because furshits are more plentiful in general.

/v/ is naturally NSFW thanks to the gore and adult themes some videogames handle, making the board NSFW doesn't necessarily make it a porn board, idiot.
Perhaps what we need is to allow NSFW but ban porn dumps, you know, not vidya shit.
>>
Just delete /v/
>>
Here are the main problems that I see on /v/
1. Blatant shitposting. Entering an on-topic thread and shitting in it to derail it and incite arguments. Don't like a particular game? Don't be a manchild, ignore it/hide it and move on.
2. Retarded people that don't realize it's blatant shitposting and replying to it instead of reporting and or hiding it or even just ingoring it. If EVERYONE did these things the shitposters wouldn't even be a problem.

Better moderation desu.

That doesn't mean more moderation, it just means better.

Some of the off topic threads or threads that were lightly about vidya were she of the best threads on /v/. Nobody posts stories threads, glitch stories, or things like that because the mods even ban that.

Ocean threads, space threads, vidya ideas threads, mineral thread, fucking Ito threads, punisher dumps, that kid or threads like that. All gone.

Threads about vidya which devolve into off topic posting that ends up far better than the thread are pretty based as well. If it's not just shitposting, there's no reason to be a complete autist.

And if you can delete everything fun within a few minutes, there is absolutely no fucking excuse that clear bait, console wars, and blatant shitposting is able to stay up for more than a few posts.

As it turns out, getting rid of fun things kills the board and turns it into endless shitposting.

Right, but the thing is regular video game discussion isn't as conducive to shitposting as threads like eceleb threads, LOL/cringe/relationship threads are. That's fine if you really, absolutely want to make a shitposting board, but once people realize it's just trolls trolling trolls they'll find a new teritary topic and bring it to /v/.

>>315365874
Great idea. Let's get more mods that actually know shit and ban people that shitpost about games they've never played. Seriously saw a guy post a list of 100 reasons why Magic was Better than Yugioh, a very easy task for anyone that's played both, instead of just posting his own. He then admitted that he doesn't play Magic because it's too expensive, another fallacy. The cancer is clearly /v/ posters, so we need to purge 90% of them. I want a /v/ where simply having a wrong opinion is a bannable offense.

>>315366128
The issue with mods is that they're completely random on what they delete and what they ban. Sometimes they delete and ban posts/people for shitposting a certain company, sometimes they don't. Sometimes they'll delete threads actually related to games and discussing them, and leave something not really vidya up. Sometimes they'll delete threads that are just image posting, even if they're vidya related.

The mods probably don't really know what should and shouldn't be allowed and are very fucking random about it.
ESPECIALLY since /v/ has a love for reporting things they just don't agree with or like.

Have you ever even been on a board with IDs for more than 10 minutes? People will simply accuse you of using proxies/VPNs/whatever. And those who are actually dedicated to samefagging will just use those methods to evade IDs.

They're worthless. All they do is take away from the anonymity of posts. They do not solve any problems.

>They still have a KS general up.

And they make it forever and stay in their thread and ERP all day.

Meanwhile the other threads all talk about video games. FGG talks about fighting games. JRPG general gives recommendations and talks about upcoming games. Even shit like FE general talks about FE between their gay shit. It's all better than /v/. If I only had to ignore a single /v/ thread like I do for KSG and get insanely informative topical threads like hentai game general when I want to get into that, /v/ would be amazing.

Instead you get no actual discussion and almost all shit posting. If /v/ was even 20% shit posting it would be ok, but it's almost all shit posting. At this point I think people legitimately think the way they post so it's beyond saving. Just make /jv/ so I don't have to deal with them and they can enjoy their cesspool.

You are delusional if you think /jp/ was meant to alleviate 2hu threads on /v/ only and even then your point is mute with several 2hu threads on /v/ everytime a new game is announced and even some Soku matchmaking threads.
All the /v/ splits are used, yes but other than /vg/ all of them are failures and became huge circlejerks and while /vg/ is the worst offender, in theory /vg/ was a circlejerk containment board so it does its work properly and /wsg/ had to be made because /gif/ was just animated /b/.

I can't entirely disagree with this, but it's not like NEVER EVER and it's fine when Nintendo does it is going anywhere. The new board would cater to its audience at any rate.

>I'll say it again, more boards is not the solution, making the boards we have better is.
I would agree with this if it weren't for the fact that it has n e v e r worked. /v/ has had ups and downs but there is nothing that can be done to better this board alone.

Except stricter and better moderation but that would require money and resources on 4chan's part so that's not happening either

I think the biggest issue is the mods. It's like they don't even know what's allowed. The rules say vidya culture is allowed, but mods still delete those kinds of threads, while threads that cause flamewars and shitposting stay up.

The mods are really random about what they delete too, and I think that might be because of /v/'s love for reporting things they don't like.

>>315366654
There are far less shit posters for Japanese games that actually like them.

The rest would be on /v/ shitposting more about Fallout. It's very obvious most shitposters in Japanese threads have not played the games in question. Make a thread about a Platinum game for example. Apparently Platinum has only made 3 games and they are all Bayonetta and 2 hours.

Video games discussion only. Character & genre threads are allowed.

/b/, /cm/, /y/, /hm/, half the boards are literally meant for image dumps, you just don't want to leave your comfort zone.
If you truly want to discuss, for instance, dwarves you could ask for games with dwarves and talk about games with dwarves and the game with the best dwarf design and why but no, you just want to have YET ANOTHER IMAGEDUMP.

>General complaining about boards you don't like regardless of how much they fit the criteria.
Faggot.
>Alright, and where does discussion about the characters in that game go?
Their moveset and gameplay mechanics.
You can technically talk about the bible if you start a binding of isaac thread and ask about why Samson gets stronger when he gets hit or why is Azazel a goat.

I think the main problem with /v/ is the kiddies who come here and are just "I just want to talk about video games!" and shitpost in any thread about people related to videogames or videogame news.

Like it or not, TB dying of Cancer, whatever stupid thing Phil has said or a screencap confirming Fallout 4 has micro transactions for ammo or some shit IS video game related. These are things of intrest to the common gamer and being "I just wanna talk about VIDEO GAMES" is fucking pointless. All that would happen if you banned these things is you would post a thread being "Has anyone played Doom 3?", /v/ would go "Its shit" and then the thread ends. Theres nothing to talk about with JUST videogames.

You would think that this was a good change, but the result is that a lot of the videogame threads themselves got much worse ever since.

No, because they're not in video games, and they're not involved with the development of a video game.

Video game characters are actually A PART OF the game, though. Big difference. If it's a story-driven game, they play an essential role in the development of said game. Banning discussion about them is just silly.

While yes, that would make things sweet mods do ban shit based on opinions to the point is so obvious they dont care.

I've been on Rise, Yukari, and Aigis threads and those usually discuss those characters, their attributes, attitudes, how they act in the game, etc. Actual fucking game related discussion. Yes, some images get posted, but they're of the character, contained in the thread, and pertain to the discussion of said character.

Did a waifufag kill your mom or something? Is that why you hate discussing characters?

It's pretty simple. If your thread is about the content of a video game, it's vidya. If your thread is about people who make or play vidya, or about fapping to vidya, it's not vidya.

I'll just repost this and hopefully never see this type of thread again until he makes a change.


I want the people who treat japanese games like the second coming of christ to have their own board merged with /a/. Lets see how long that will last. I can tell you a secret. It won't even last two days. These people also can't seem to understand that there are people who like content from both continents. I want people to realize that, when you are in Rome, you do as Rome. This is the rule of any fucking board. Japanese games and Western games are fine. They can live in harmonyposting together. But if you start to stir shit between the two of it and falseflagging wars, you should literally self-destruct by jumping off a bridge. People from other boards invading and spreading their culture on /v/ need to fuck off.


Add better moderation on /v/. Outright ban people for fucking weeks for shitposting. Over time the no-fun allowed atmosphere will dissipiate as people can seperate their stupidity from quality posting. The effort to make /v/ somewhat decent again is half from the mods, and half from the userbase.


I also want consolewars to stop, even though it has been here since 2006, its been far worse than recently, especially when E3 comes up or a press conference from console xyz. Send those fucks to /vg/ to their own general. Or to neogaf I really do not give a fuck.


Shillposting is very apparent, in particular the sticky'd assassin's creed thread few weeks back. Permaban these people. Blanket ban them. Just make sure they never return again. I don't care if you get a few innocents between it. Let them contact you and get that sorted case by case basis.

All in all, /v/ has a lot of work to deal with. And boardsplitting wont work when we have a several video game boards already. It wont solve shit.


Get to it Hiro.

But you still see toddposting, you still see smug pepe about MGS5, you still see lol/dota threads, hell furfag and mlp stuff still crops up on a frequent basis. Very few other boards have this issue and part of it is because of the traffic on /v/.

I already posted it in the last thread but, a second /vr/ dedicated to 6th Gen and 7th Gen consoles would be nice. It'd eliminate any meta posting on /vr/ about changing the rules, since all the contenders that people seem to clamor for would be covered by this without the shitstorm of changing the rules on /vr/ itself. It's hard to discuss PS2, GC, etc., on /v/, the same way it's hard to discuss retro games.

Also save the LOL threads, we can't afford to lose them.

We don't need to split the board any further. /v/, /vg/ and /vr/ cover everything fine.

E-celeb shit should be banned obviously, but I think the mods/janitors have been doing a decent job lately of deleting them. They just need to be reported.

People spamming obnoxious shit like "buy my game" should be deleted, but not totally banned. There's nothing wrong with having funny threads every now and then, but when people start spamming it constantly it should be deleted because it is just spam.

-Also actually ban for flamewars, even though it's mostly pc posters.
-Delete threads flooding (remember that?) the board, one example is all the Undertumblr threads.
-X-Day Threads shouldn't be allowed if they're not video games, specifically Touhou (/jp/), Miku (/jp/) and "Console-Tans" (tumblr circlejerk, no video game discussion at all)
-Reinforce the "quality posts" rule, it's obvious who breaks then especially with the facebook/reddit nig speak that's the same as "u tk him 2 da brl?!", it's fucking stupid.
-Have some mods/janitors at late nite 4chan, it's obvious all the shitposters come out at this time and they break all the rules they want, leading more to do so in general.
-Exile drawthreads momentarily because as of right now there's no quality OC made, and the entire thread is just waifu shitposting, requests shouldnt even be allowed like before.

Gamerfuel is the only legitimately non-video game topic. LOL threads could be vidya if it stayed people just posting shitty unfunny video game comics.

There's too much traffic on /v/ to teach that to the ALL the blithering teens who frequent this place.

They're probably the ones you ignore flipping through the catalog. You know, some link to a news site talking about nintendo earnings or stocks or something and people going nintenyearolds on suicide watch or whatever. Or that exact same shit with sony or microsoft. Some of those threads actually seem to have a few rational people in them sometimes, but usually not.
